Single and Italian, Gigi Datome will keep his beard and ponytail

John Niyo of The Detroit News:

He’d prefer it if you called him “Gigi.” He’s single, in case anybody’s interested.

And, yes, the newest member of the Detroit Pistons, Italian sharpshooter Luigi Datome, said Monday he plans on keeping both the full beard and the ponytail.

“Yes, why not?” he laughed, shortly after signing his first NBA contract. “So people will recognize me easier.”

Look out, Jonas Jerebko. You might have competition.
